Den. Gowan's Tangello 'Vivid Orange'
- President's Report to AGM 2017
Well President again, just as well I still have passion for our affiliated societies.
Society visits have started. The Southern Orchid Spectacular was a great success and is going from strength to strength. All the Christmas parties were great, it is good to see the affiliated societies recognising their members. The new year brought a call from Townsville Orchid Society for OSNSW to send Cymbidium flowers to the Tropical Queensland Conference . They are unable to grow them. Plants/flowers for the display were donated by Sydney members, and we were overwhelmed by the generosity of those members. Orchids Out West went very well, many great displays, the vendors were all happy. Many affiliated societies had shows this autumn and winter all judged by our hard working Judges. Of course August was busy as usual, the Cymbidium Spectator then St Ives. Both these shows are run by Affiliated Societies.
Judges training is still continuing with OSNSW supporting these activities.
The 2018 Conference is powering along, it will prove to be one of the best. The website is up and running for registration and expressions of interest. All information for the conference is on the website. The Conference committee continues to work hard to deliver the best AOC conference.
As I come to the end of my first year I look back and see we are still a coherent state. Irene Chalmers
